Yup thats the 425g RD mold. That one is case in LINO and ya can see how it "riveted".that the old LEE for the 45-70?
it looks just like the one I have.
anyway line that one up evenly to a new one and the 009 next to a new one and you'll see why I prefer flat nose bullets for hunting versus round nose ones.
that and the penetration will tell you another something.
Yes, that is the SAECO # 315 shot at 50 yards out of my Handi Rifle , 30-30 Win.I'm fairly positive that's one of Ben's Pic's on the bottom, I lifted it off a search site I use.
ok you guys hurt my head I shoot all pistols, so i think I understand.
BUT assuming is all works right do the boolist center up do they really and shoot better?
Hey bruce381, welcome to the forum. I somehow missed your arrival.
What rifle do you want to shoot cast in? What purpose do you foresee for that rifle? Paper targets, long range, moderate, close? Hunting?
My pleasure in cast bullet rifle shooting comes from knocking down steel targets with modest loads, that are easy on me, my rifle, my targets, and my budget.
I am now regularly under 2 MOA out to 440 yards. The slower speed of .30 caliber cast is allowing me to experience some of the nuances of long range shooting on a closer scale. What I mean is, just like shooting .22 l.r. out to 300+ yards has force me to learn drop, windage, mirage, and technique, so has shooting cast in rifles. Currently I am stuck at 440 because that is all the range I have here. I view Waco's success of 2 MOA cast at 500 as a worthy goal and one I hope to attain.
We here on the forum can offer more information if we know what your goals are, and can save you a pile of money and frustration to boot.
